Fast and fabulous recipes

Fast, fresh and fabulous – what’s not to like? Here's a preview of the recipes in our February 2015 issue.

Jamaican goat curry

"Goat is the world's most consumed meat and we hardly give it a look in Australia. I adore it in so many different preparations, from South-East Asian dishes through to Italian braises, but my favourite is Jamaican curry with its heady spices," says Evans. "I see spices as nature's medicine cabinet and use them in as much of my cooking as possible. If you can't get your hands on quality goat meat (farmers' markets are a good bet or online), then feel free to substitute lamb or another protein. But if you've never had goat before, I urge you to give it a whirl."

Wine to Try

2008 First Drop Wines Bella Coppia Arneis, Adelaide Hills, A$26
For simple lunchtime fodder such as this, a basic sauvignon blanc would suffice, but with the ever-increasing interest in exotic varietals, why not take a step up-market? And arneis is an up-market drop. Firstly, it comes from that food-and-wine heaven Piedmont and secondly, it is one of the few newcomers that has that all-important quality - flavour. Arneis is subtle - with delicious, crisp nashi flavours, a pleasing silky texture and a gently persistent finish - driven by a zest of fresh grapefruity acid. The first plantings of arneis were on the Mornington Peninsula and its pioneer, Garry Crittenden, makes an excellent example. Chrismont, Dal Zotto and Pizzini in the King Valley are all producing first-rate interpretations, while the funky lads from First Drop Wines in the Adelaide Hills are nailing the variety perfectly.
